We have been mandated as sole financial adviser on acquisitions varying in size from £10 million to £1 billion.

Knowing the market and the likely behaviour of both the vendor and rival bidders is vital for success in any auction process.  Such knowledge can only be provided on a timely basis by an industry-focused advisory firm.

Long-established relationships with key individuals in the sector, built on trust and integrity, provide greater access to decision-makers.

How does this benefit clients when it comes to acquisitions? First of all, when we propose an idea to a potential seller on behalf of a client, the seller knows our reputation and respects our knowledge. Secondly, we know at an early stage whether transactions are achievable. Finally, deals can be secured off-market.
